We’re delighted to be exhibiting at the 2013 Screenwriters World Conference West this Saturday, Sep 28th! This excerpt was taken from a great post from ScriptMag editor and conference speaker, Jeanne Bowerman, highlighting some of what to look forward to at the conference.

“Allow me to answer one important question I keep getting: "Why should a screenwriter attend a conference?"
My advice is simple: To advance your career, improve your craft and build your network. Really. These events are that powerful. I promise.
Screenwriters World Conference West has amazing sessions taught by experienced professionals in the industry. This is your chance to pick their brains face-to-face. These instructors have a range of experience from reading thousands of scripts, helping writers get produced, and creating successful, original content of their own (one to mention is Erik Bork, writer/producer of HBO's Band of Brothers and a personal hero of mine). Their expertise can help elevate your career and writing to a new level.”
Conference attendees include Ed Saxon (Silence of the Lambs), Doug Richardson (Die Hard 2, Bad Boys, Hostage), Tom Schulman (Dead Poet's Society, What About Bob?, Honey, I Shrunk the Kids) and Robbie Fox (So I Married an Axe Murderer, In the Army Now, Playing for Keeps) amongst others.
